2002F250 always dies after full warm-up
I've had this truck over 3 yrs ( now ~195,000 m ) with no problems, til last month, when it died after 5 miles. Then, same thing again. Two tows home. I'm not close to a ford diesel mechanic. On this forum, it seems to be same problem as described by Clinton2323 on 11/18/13 ( no replies) Then, I let it run for 90 min in my driveway, without trouble, AND seeing that the temp guage was only at ~1/4 up, I ran the throttle at 2000 RPM, and 2500, and even 3000 rpm, until the engine died, AS SOON AS IT REACHED FULL OPERATING TEMP ( ~ 1/2 way up the temp guage )
It will start after it cools down completely ,and runs rough until I raise the throttle a bit, for a few seconds.
I bet it still dies, when it's fully warms up..
I've drained the water-bowl, added Cetane-Boost, and changed the fuel filters after the first incident.
So....What's up here???
At least my 1984 Benz300D always starts !
